“Lovely people, gorgeous views, short stroll from Kalk Bay”
Reviewed 5 September 2012 for a stay in July 2012

Only a short stroll from the fishing village of Kalk Bay (just long enough to knock your dinner down!), this well-equipped house offers splendid views of the bay and mountains, and they've provided binoculars so you can scope out the ships in the naval base. It feels like you're in someone's loved, well-maintained home, with a big squidgy couch and a small terrace.
It's on the main coastal road so very easy to find - crossing the road to the tidal pool on the other side of the road can be terrifying though because cars fly down this route. (Parking is non-existent so leave your car on the pavement.) There are a number of stairs up to the front door so maybe not one for the disabled.
The hosts are kind and thoughtful, equally happy to help and happy to leave you to your own devices.
Three bedrooms each have double beds, with the main one being en-suite and the smallest one a little pokey, but fine too. There's a decent second bathroom: both bathrooms have showers and tubs.
All-in-all, perfect for my mixed group, and perfect for anyone with a bottle of wine needing a good view, and a taste for good food and fun all within very easy reach.

How easy was it to book the property? How helpful were the directions to the property?
How easy was key pickup/access to the property? Overall condition of the property

Liked best: The view! The location!
Liked least: The double beds were indeed merely double: I prefer a HUGE bed, but I'm spoilt.

Hi Brent,
Thank you so much for the review and you will be pleased to know that the water pressure is something of the past.You may not know this but our original house dates back to 1893 and was one of the earliest built in our little historic village.
Please be kind enough to pass our very best wishes to your folks in Palo Alto and tell them we look forward to seeing them again soon.
Kind regards,
Johan and Pam
